Boat Ban to Stop the Spread of Hydrilla
The Maine Departments of Environmental Protection and Inland Fisheries and Wildlife are temporarily banning all boats on a portion of Davis Stream following the find of the invasive aquatic plant hydrilla.

The surface use restriction is effective immediately and will run through ice formation. Next spring, the departments will jointly consider whether to reissue the restriction. Under the order, no watercraft may enter or travel this reach of Davis Stream except in emergency situations or when the environmental department ad endorsed volunteers are doing survey or removal work related to the hydrilla infestation.

The state hopes preventing use of this section of stream will stop the spread of hydrilla to other parts of Damariscotta Lake and ensure the suppression efforts by DEP staff and volunteers are most effective. Hydrilla is considered the worst of the invasive aquatic offenders, forming dense mats that prevent the use of the waterways.
